Climb That Hill

I got out and went hiking on Thanksgiving; however, I didn’t climb a mountain. I climbed a hill instead. The hill is called Midland Hill (9,556 ft.) The trailhead for it is at Riverside Park in Buena Vista. The hike is about a five mile round trip. The views were great. The weather was quite nice. It was warmer than I expected. I wish I had worn shorts. There were quite a few people out for a Thanksgiving Day. I did time the summit right. I had it to myself. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
